In this booklet Jill Dudley writes about Hippocrates who was born on Kos, whose father was a temple priest-physician serving Asclepius, god of healing. She describes Hippocrates' pioneering approach to medicine, and his break with the traditional belief that sickness was an infliction imposed by the gods. It is as the back cover of the booklet says: all you need to know about the island's myths, legends and its gods.
